Formerly lined up for sometime in 2023, we now have a better idea of when to expect the anime adaptation of Nene Yukimori’s Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible manga. The series is officially set to start its broadcast run in January 2023 in Japan, and a new visual arrived along with two additional cast members.
The latest cast members are Miku Ito (Miku in The Quintessential Quintuplets) as Akina Kubo, pictured on the left in the visual below, and Sora Amamiya (Chizuru in Rent-a-Girlfriend) as Saki Kubo, pictured on the right.
As previously reported, heroine Nagisa Kubo will be voiced by Kana Hanazawa (Ichika in The Quintessential Quintuplets), and the teased Junta Shiraishi will be voiced by Kengo Kawanishi (Gen in Dr. STONE).
Rent-a-Girlfriend director Kazuomi Koga is at the helm for this one, with Yuya Takahashi (Selection Project) on series composition and Yoshiko Saito (animation director on Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation) handling character designs at anime studio PINE JAM (Kageki Shojo!!).
The original manga is available on Shueisha’s MANGA Plus app, which sums up the story:
First year high schooler Junta Shiraishi is a mob character who goes unnoticed even when he’s standing right next to you. But his classmate, “heroine-level beauty” Kubo, always notices him and is there to tease him. Anyone can become special to someone, but it might be a little too early to call these feelings “love.” Perhaps this story is still two-steps from being a romantic comedy–let’s call it a sweet comedy where a background character becomes visible!
